Thank you so much for taking a look at our “Online campus” and for connecting with us in any way you feel comfortable.
A trusted mentor once told me, “Tim, when you look for and find the perfect church, you’ll join it and mess it up.” RCF is not the perfect church. Though we do strive for excellence, we know that real people and real churches are messy, and we’re so glad that our real God doesn’t seem to mind rolling up his sleeves, slipping on his mud boots, and climbing down into the mess with us.
What makes for even more fun is that we strive to be a church in the market place. We gather together as often as possible, but our gatherings are designed to get us ready to go out and be the church in our families, our neighborhoods, our work places, our communities, and around the world. That means we treasure the opportunity to connect with and serve people from all walks of life, cultures, faiths, beliefs, mindsets, goals, narratives, etc. This too can be messy.
So whether you are ready to roll up your sleeves and get to work with us, or in need right now of just being loved on (…or, like most of us, a combination of both), we hope you find RCF to be a safe place to explore grace and truth. Take a look around the site and let us know how we can further connect with you.
We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the verbally inspired Word of God, the final authority for faith and life, inerrant in the original writings, infallible, and God-breathed.
We believe in one Triune God, eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – co-eternal in being and nature, co-equal in power and glory, having the same attributes and perfections.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God and became man without ceasing to be God – conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary – that he might reveal God and redeem sinful man.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through his death on the cross as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that our justification is made sure by his literal, physical resurrection from the dead.
We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord Jesus Christ; that he ascended into heaven; and is now exalted at the right hand of God where, as our high priest, he fulfills the ministry as representative, intercessor, and advocate.
We believe in the imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ to gather his Church unto him and to judge the living and the dead.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person who convicts the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; he is the Supernatural Agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers into the body of Christ, indwelling and sealing them unto the day of redemption.
We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that through Adam’s sin humanity fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God; man is totally depraved and of himself utterly unable to remedy his lost condition.
We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins. All who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.
We believe that all the redeemed, once saved, are kept by God’s power and are thus secure in Christ forever.
We believe that the church, a covenant family of all born-again persons, is the body of Christ.
We believe in the establishment, continuance, and autonomy of local churches.
We recognize believer’s baptism and the Lord’s Supper as the churches’ scriptural means of testimony.
We believe the Biblical revelation that we are designed and created for the one ultimate purpose of worshiping God –individually and corporately glorifying him in all of life, enjoying him in all that he enjoys.
